In the last few years, Senior Sys­tems Technology (SST) Inc. has been named Boeing’s Supplier of the Year, received the Raytheon IDS Supplier Excellence Award and was honored as a Distinguished Supplier by ITT.

Although there’s no shortage of people wondering if it’s gone for good, the American dream is still alive and well, if you know where to look for it.
